Oh here, James. Good shot old boy.

Just take care that McCarthy and his SS brigade don't come down on
you all over again for daring to be at all familiar with the work of
(GASP) Karl Marx.

Let's merely hope that now we have them on the back foot spluttering
and apologising over their associations with the Hoover Institute, a
Window of Opportunity may open through which we are able to discuss
some anthropology here . . .
